is the half to do to keep it simple? >> ronald reagan brought it down to the individual it is my microphone, our town, home, village, police department. the regulations when you create a system that should solve problems but don't people will take shortcuts bordering is as high as it has ever been. mitt romney better get off a high horse to come down to mainstream. people are terrified right now the president is leading a lot of the polls but i look at the trend if you argue not as big of the lead the trend is not his friend. >> obama's says i am a person of the people says they will put you in chains and take you -- take your life they hate women. people will believe it it distorts the reality and mitt romney better break up the better bring this down to a coal miner in ohio and the factory worker and a farmer gets it if not he will lose the election. neil: thank you very, very much. have ron paul who has had enough with it all. unplugged and looking at a believable mess that nobody is taking the time to address. democrats could see a meltdown in november. they could see the 2010 [ owner ]
and how ronald reagan did that. you do not have to change things immediately, you just have to give a plan that makes people think and hope and pray you have started the process, right? >>guest: that is correct. you need to get growth. you have to get growth. you cannot balance the budget on the backs of the unemployed and the poor. that is where a flat tax comes in. it allows attraction of the capital abroad. sam nunn was correct, you have to cut government spending. that has to happen, especially entitlements where you pay people not to work. there are other ways of bringing the debt down. cool ones. for example, how about a federal state, local, tax amnesty program? there are a lot of people in the underground economy that would be brought above ground with amnesty program. i estimate a federal, state and local tax amnesty program would raise about $800 billion in 90 days. you can also sell some assets off. camped person -- camp pendleton is 500 square miles in california. why not sell it? >>neil: my point, when you say it is too big to handle, you are missing the point, you cannot cut
-- sean, you and i know this, the president walked into a mess. >> sean: so did ronald reagan. ronald reagan at this point in his presidency, 8% growth. >> we're not debating ronald reagan. we're debating obama. >> sean: reagan had a worse economy than obama inherited. he said he was inheriting it, and he said he'd fix it. he hasn't fixed it. now we see economic growth, we're heading toward a recession. it's getting worse. $6 trillion in debt, fewer americans working. 17 million more on food stamps. you say he's done a good job and you'd give him a "a." you don't believe that. you don't believe that! >> actually i do. let's think of it this way, sean. we know there's been 30 straight months of private sector job growth. we know he created 5 million jobs. >> sean: no, he did not. private sector from this month to this month -- you're skewing the statistics. fewer americans are working than when he took office. a net loss. >> we can debate the numbers here. i believe i'm right. more importantly, let's look where we're headed. let's say we're in the middle of an ocean, you're in a rowboa
. >> bill: in next weeks debate, can romney do what ronald reagan did to jimmy carter? megyn kelly has some thoughts. >> bill: caution the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. the likeability factor. that the subject of talking points memo. there two are kinds of voters in america those that know the issues and those that don't. emotion drives a decision and part of that equation is likeability. many people think reagan defeated carter because he came across likable while carter was distant and same thing with bill clinton and younger clinton showed more personality. bush the younger remained personally popular until the recession kicked in. right now in a popularity poll, president obama is ahead of mitt romney by throw three-points according to a new survey. after next week's debate it could change dramatically. there is no question about obama and romney realize they must come across as nice guys that is why they go on entertainment programs. >> we're is very happy you came on this a mrs. obama and brought your date? >> i brought him. he had a few minutes in his sched
don't want to have them overscripted. that is what happened to ronald reagan in 1984 debate with walter mondale. it overran the persona of ronald reagan. next debate he was much more relaxed. roger ails did a great job preparing him and did much better job. same thing with governor romney. he has to know how to answer the questions but he has to be relaxed and rely on himself. one of the things i tell candidates it's very important that they have the good political judgment to make decisions and think on their feet rather than rely on script. >> give me one thing that you think we ought to look for out of mitt romney and one thing out of obama in this debate coming up on wednesday. >>> i think one of the -- apart from the economy, i do think one thing we should be looking for is to see if the president is willing to talk about his record on the economy and defend it. the american people ought to be making a judgment whether or not the president can defend that record. he ought to be looking for governor romney how well he press the case against the president. it's been his f
the president like ronald reagan stung jimmy carter that he will immediately become the frontrunner and the so-called swings states will tighten up. most of them anyway. florida particularly will. that's my analysis right now. >> i think these state races probably will tighten but that's what happens in the final weeks of a campaign. races tend to tighten. this will be a closer race in all likelihood as we get closer to election day one senses though that look an incumbent running with a record like this with the economy in such serious shape many people predicting recession with all this trouble he he has been having overseas, with all of that he he ought to be in a lot of trouble. it's surprising to many people that he is ahead. we keep thinking something will happen. is he is not a great politician but seems honorable and decent enough man that if the people were ready to make a change they would not have a lot of trouble settling on him as a reliable change agent. however it hasn't happened. we keep waiting for something to cause it to happen but it hasn't come. that's why i think people a
. >> are you better off than you were four years ago. neil: you know ronald reagan asked that in 1980. mitt romney is set to is that in next debate. some say it's not so simple, we're off of the worst of the meltdown so, technically better than those days but also 5 trillion deeper in debt, so we're worse, then housing and retail sales, that muddy it somewhat. there is a piece of data that is stark in its consistancey for barack obama cutting to the core of this country fragility. household income is falling, how much of a factor will it have on this election. to former fed governor randal, and advisory joannie, who they make on this, randal, how big of an impact. >> this is important, average americans have not made progress over last few years, some is due to statistics because average households a little bit smaller overtime. also we have more people on lower incomes but living off their savings, this is a mayor challenge and makes people feel uncomfortable. neil: what is interesting that goes into this, our portfolio our income, president will argue, well, yes, tech neckly but in the --
and so his policies are not proposals that are open to negotiations. for instance, ronald reagan had policies that were always open to negotiations, with tip o'neil, and they worked things out. this is not the way this president works, it's either his way or nothing happens. stuart: all right, i would say you've harshly characterized the president "the amateur". how would you characterize mitt romney so far the way his campaign is going and presents himself to the public. >> well, sadly, i don't think he's exactly been the pro. i don't think he's been the master. i think he's shown a lot of amateurism as well, running for president. stuart: political amateurism, not policy. >> oh, no, the policies, i think are solid, as the rock of gibralter. i think we see him stumbling, doing things that are not in his own political interests. he seems to have a bit of a tin ear. i think he's gotten better, but he still has a long way to go. stuart: can i ask how the book is going? sold a lot, hasn't it. >> the book is going fantastically, 20 weeks, number two on the new york times best seller list
as ronald reagan. but it's notable that he's even trying in a campaign that's been unwilling and unable to engage america in the larger world. he's finally trying to do it. in terms of what they're going to do, on even just say the issue of war we're in right now, they have really been unwilling to engage. maybe this means they'll start. so far, i mean, famously mr. romney didn't mention the war in afghanistan at all. he explained in speeches like that you don't go through a laundry list. you go through things that are important. the war wasn't important to him. but it's not just specifically afghanistan. here's another one. if you go to mitt romney's website right now and you type the word drones into the search box on the website because you want to know his position. you will find three results. three. one result is mr. romney criticizing mr. obama after a drone crashed in iran. then there's a policy paper criticizing the obama administration for talking about drones to news outlets like "the new york times" and you have one of the is your gates for killing osama bin laden. if you wa
. ronald reagan's perspective has dominated republicans' thoughts on this matter for years. >> we have a different approach, the president and i, between a government-dominated society and a society driven by free people pursuing their dreams. >> reporter: romney insists the federal government should be smaller and less intrusive in terms of regulations and taxes and largely it should keep out of the free market. >> i line up with a smaller government, a less intrusive government, regulations being pared back. >> such views on both sides of course can make a difference. but here is the catch. for the past century, with a few exceptions, the government has been expanding no matter which party has held the white house. more cabinet positions, more agencies, more spending per citizen and much of that is driven by things like we menged at the start. population growth, economic trends and entitlements, meaning the question is probably not whether the government will keep growing under mr. obama or mr. romney, but rather how fast. tom foreman, cnn, washington. >>> child sex trafficking, thos
, between ronald reagan and president carter. >> there you go again. >> and lloyd benson's swipe at quail. >> jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you are no jack kennedy. >> and then the moments that seemed to say more, like george h. bush looking at his watch. and rick perry's oops remark. and romney's wager, and obama's comment to then-rival hilary. >> he's got two tough competing goals, to be likeable and layout a contrast. it's hard to be likeable when you are the attack dog. >> we have gotten to know barack obama, and there's not a lot of room on his canvas to paint, and romney can still show us who he is and where he would lead us. >> the president spends the first part of the week in the battleground state of nevada where he will be doing prep, and mitt romney will be in colorado another swing state where he will practice with ohio senator, rob porter, who is playing president obama. >>> and so what will they say? american voters will weigh their choice and the first of three presidential debates coming up this wednesday night, and can you watch it with us live at 7:00 east
in history of, there you go again, ronald reagan and jimmy carter. that seems to be what they're going for. we thought let's come up with our own suggested zingers or mitt romney. >> we're all about helping out romney. >> i came up with one. i'll lead it off. maybe romney can say something like barack obama is almost as unreliable as my backup yacht. zing. >> zing! >> mine is even worse than that. >> impossible. >> barack obama, try baracko'pologizes for america. >> zinger. >> mine is want to hear a joke? the national debt. zing! >> i like the sound effect. >> i imagine romney might actually say to paraphrase "top gun" your ego is writing checks your government can't cash. >> you misunderstood the assignment. >> i got a good one from nick who helps us out. tough on foreign policy. even his hairline is receding. >> that's good. >> that's good. >> yeah, no. it's amazing to me when you look at these and you see this, it can be funnier not in presidential debates, senate races, house races, where they show up and try too hard and often you find that's their undoing. >> i was going to say, i th
, colonel? >> ronald reagan. >> bill: no, no, no. i mean that -- you're not saying that fa serbsly? >> no, i'm not. i think romney is to a large ex tents an unknown in foreign affairs. he is a good manager and i think he would take advice from wise people. president obama is a known quantity and that known quantity has failed in every single respect in foreign policy, except the seals killing bin laden, which any president would have done. bill, look, what the president said in his well delivered empty speech at the u.n. today was exactly what he has been saying for years. we're going to talk this to death, we'll negotiate with iran. four years, negotiations have failed utterly. iran is much closer to nuclear weapons, having nuclear weapons. the world is a more dangerous place. israel is threatened. what does obama have to show for four years? >> bill: isn't the only other alternative war? a military strike? doesn't seem to be anything else that he's not doing, although i do have one thing in the back of my mind, but i'm going to hold it back. go. >> nobody wants war in the persian gulf. but
romney. however, if the governor can do what ronald reagan did in 1980, that is keep the incumbent president on the defense during the debates, then the polls will surely change. that's not an easy thing to do because the debate formats allow the candidates to say pretty much whatever they want to sacht the moderator next week jim lair is not going to control obama or romney. he will ask a question and keep quiet. that's not a knock on will he leher. any interruptions are deemed inappropriate. the out of touch with the folks. the president has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on ads stating that. the governor does come across as a classic rich guy. it's tough to picture him super sizing his meal at mcdonald's. the kennedy's were like that as well. but in this class warfare age, that perception is certainly holding romney back. the president's record is dubious to say the least. but many americans aren't paying attention and will vote on emotion. thus the rich guy and regular phi scenario. governor romney has only one chance. he must convince voters during the debates that if t
the criticism a little bit, you know, back when ronald reagan was president, he did not attend every general debate at the end of september at the u.n. he did not come up here all eight times as president. i think subsequent presidents have all come up, but i think reagan hit right. you don't have to come up here every year. >> greta: so if president obama hadn't spoken this year, and that would be -- that would be -- there's a historic reference for it, and that would be okay in your mind, or is this a different time? >> no. i think it goes against obama's ideology. he had to come and give the speech. he had to bend a knee to the rest of the world at the podium, which he did in his speech. but he's trying to minimize the contact, because he knows it's not popular domestically in the united states. however good it is for his image internationally. so he did the absolute minimum and then he got out of town. >> greta: after the prime minister netanyahu gives his speech and goes back to israel, map out what you think will happen in the next couple weeks, if anything. >> well, i don't know. i do
dwroefr come. it's not easy to beat an incumbent president, and mitt romney is no ronald reagan or bill clinton. >> when you have an incumbent president with 8% unemployment, it's very difficult to win. romney has proven to be the worst candidate we've seen in perhaps 30, 40 years. i go back to steve's memory now when we get into 50, 60, 70 years. i agree with what's said including your points about mccain. if romney ran in '08 as he is now, obviously he did run in '08 and it didn't work out with him. one day we blame romney, and we've seen a lot of blame for romney throughout the campaign. one day blaming the polling and liberal media. i think that's a stretch. when do we look at the ideology and the difficult sell that is for the american people. when you have a party where the conventional wisdom is that this is a party that is here for the rich to serve the rich and the corporations, that's a very difficult sell. i don't know that chris christie, regular guy, could sell that better. i don't know if rick santorum can sell that better than what we've seen already. >> well, obviously,
in carter's campaign and is blamed by many for costing ford the election. in 1980, ronald reagan is repeatedly attacked by president carter for his stance on health care. >> governor reagan, as a matter of fact, began his political career campaigning around this nation against medicare. >> but reagan wins fans and the election by staying cool. >> there you go again. >> four years later, president reagan again uses humor to handle attacks on his age during his debate with walter mondale. >> i want you to know that also, i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> in the next election, democratic candidate michael dukakis is asked this controversial question in his debate with vice president george w. bush. >> governor, if kitty dukakis were raped and murdered, would you favor an irrevocable death penalty for the killer? >> no, i don't. i think you know i have opposed the death penalty during all of my life. >> the public sees his answer as cold and dispassionate and that very night, his po
it in the first place. every time we have done this whether it was ronald reagan working with tip o'neill. the ideas from the bowles simpson commission on how to do this. a traditional democratic republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works and you can. >> chris: you haven't given me the math. >> i don't have the -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. let me say this this way. you can lower tax rates by 20% across the board by closing loopholes and still have preferences for the middle class for things like charitable deductions is or home purchases and healthcare. so what we are saying is people are going to get lower tax rates and therefore they will not send as much money to washington and they will keep it and decide for themselves. when we have done this we created economic growth. >> chris: suppose that the doubters are right and president romney takes office and the math doesn't add up. >> i have run them in congress and they do. >> chris: let's assume it doesn't. the question is what is most important to romney? kale bacscale
it was ronald reagan working with tip o'neill the idea -- there has been a traditional democrat and republican consensus, lower tax rates, broadening the tax base works and you can, but i -- >> i don't, you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't know... it would take too long to go through all the math. let me say it this way: you can lower tax rates 20% across the board, by closing loopholes and still have, the middle class, things like charitable deductions, home purchases, health care. what we are saying is, people are going to get lower tax rates and, therefore, will not send as much money to washington, and will keep it and decide for themselves. we've done it and created economic growth. >> chris: if, suppose, that the doubters are right and president obama takes office and -- >> i've run the numbers in congress, they do. we have five other studies that show -- >> let's assume it doesn't. the question is what is most important to romney, will he scale back on the 20% tax cut for the wealthy? would he scale back and say, okay. we'll have to raise taxes for the middle class? i guess t
just by being on the stage with an incumbent president, but you have to be ronald reagan and do a there you go again and make something of that in the ensuing campaign and also outside events, obviously, iran, the hostage situation was fatally damaging to jimmy carter. but -- >> you can only make the case that really three presidential elections of the modern elections, the debates really played an important role. 1980 was one of those. >> 1960. >> 1960 and probably gerald ford's election where he said that the eastern europe was not -- or poland was not dominated by the soviet union, made some difference in a close election. but this is going to be a close election. in spite of what you see in some of the polls, some are close now, the fundamental dynamics of this race are quite close and so its could make a difference in this race. >> thank you so much. >>> up next, is iraq unraveling? a look at where the u.s. policy stands now, next on "andrea mitchell reports." we make a simple thing. a thing that helps you buy other things. but plenty of companies do that. so we make someth
that california has had a history of always spending more money it takes in. i think ronald reagan went through that big challenge, as you remember, when he became governor, he had to raise taxes, how to figure out how to make the severe cuts that he did. 10 years later, another republican governor had to raise taxes, went through the same problem. 10 years after that, pete wilson became governor, another republican, he had to raise taxes. 10 years later, i had to raise taxes. i hated it. arnold, how can you do that? you promised the people you wouldn't raise taxes. all of a sudden you are there with a $40 billion deficit because the economy took a dive and we had less revenues coming in. >> sean: even the car tax. >> exactly. it's a real clem and real dileml challenge. i was adamant about solving the financial problem of california to pay down the debt, number one. number two, to make the deficit go away and live within our means. i was not able to do it. >> sean: we have much more with governor schwarzenneger. is he supporting a candidate this election? that is coming up next. [ male announce
's problems is he's not likeable enough and he may need to turn on the kind of easy ronald reagan charm which he deployed so successfully in debate. it's a fine line, isn't it, between being hard and aggressive and making a point, but also coming over as likeable. >> right. and piers, really, the way to deal with that, and i think this is true for any debate but especially one where the stakes are so high for the country, is to stick to what you want to do, to stick to the substance of the issues, where the country is with the bad economy, with the high deficit, and what you want to do about it. i think if you're passionate about that or a little bit angry or indignant about that, i think people understand, and i think that's what governor romney's going to do. >> you're a republican from missouri. of course another missouri republican, todd akin, has continued in his race. you opposed this to start with, now you're supporting him. he must be exasperated that he's still in this thing. >> well, i want change. i hope very much we can get change in the country and in the senate here in missouri.
. the exchange between ronald reagan and walter mondale demonstrates probably a very, very effective use of this. let's take a look. >> i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> did mondale's reaction help him there? >> i don't think it hurt him. i think what you saw was net positive. i think it definitely helped reagan. i mean, he owned this criticism verbally, and he delivered it so comfortably and so warmly. i think mondale's reaction was comfortable and authentic and warm in response. i think the general feeling was positive, but people are -- voters attribute that positive feeling that they had to reagan, not to mondale. >> it's really fascinating stuff. appreciate your expertise. thank you. >> thanks. thank you. >>> i find that stuff fascinating. we'll be looking for body language tomorrow night. there's a lot more to follow. susan hendricks joins us. >>> according to american airlines, an internal investigation shows an improperly installed clamp is to blame for loose passenger seats on six plan
one ready to go but make it look like it came off the top of your head. ronald reagan was a master at that. let me play a little clip. >> i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i'm not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> it was a good one. it got a great laugh. perry, an argue was mamt by roger simon in politico this morning that mitt romney needs to have a few jokes to leave people with the impression he's a regular guy and not some cardboard cutout. how important are one liners and jakes? perry? >> it's so -- >> i'm sorry. robert. sorry. gosh. >> that's okay. i was waiting for that. it's very important because obviously what american people are looking for, they both know that these individuals are smart. what they're looking for is some type of personal impression by saying, you know what? i like this guy. not only does he get the job of being president, but he's funny and humorous as well. even george w. bush was good at that in 2004 and 2000. the question is whether mitt romney can connect with the american people. most know
. despite president carter's efforts. instead, they were freed as soon as ronald reagan was inaugurated. setting off democratic suspicion never proven that reagan emissaries back channeled with ryan to delay freeing the hostages and denied the troubled carter campaign a huge pre-election boost. >> it fed into the whole dynamic of the 1980 race in the sense that jimmy carter was a stumbling, ineffective president. >> fast forward to 1992, president jhw bush was on the ropes against bill clinton over a sluggish economy when ronald laying an's defense secretary was -- bad news that bush, who served as reagan's vice president did not need. >>> in 2004, a classic october surprise. osama bin laden released a video on october 29th, just four days before election day in a razor-thin race between president bush and john kerry. >>> it served as a reminder of the terrorist threat and strategists in both parties believed helped president bush. >> the term october surprise has become a seismic event. most centered around foreign policy, others have been around the economy, like in 2008. when the eco
